as i think most observers believe, israel has a very difficult decision in the next six to nine months whether they will use military force against the iran nuclear weapon. you can count on the obama administration not using it to the spotlight will be on netanyahu. jenna: ironic you brought up prime minister netanyahu because as we were examining this question what is different this year than last. the prime minister made interesting comments from the u.n. a month ago how different 2013 may be not only for israel and iran but for the rest of the world. let's take a listen to that. >> iran has completed the first stage. took them many years but they completed it and they are 70% of the way there. now they are well into the second stage. and, by next spring, at most, by next summer, at current enrichment rates they will have fin eshed the medium enrichment and move onto the final stage. from there it is only a few months, possibly a few weeks before they get enough enriched-uranium for the first bomb. jenna: based on that timeline, this summer come up in 2013, ambassador. do you see the

issues, such as security in the sinai respect for the camp david peace accords with israel and the constructive role that we hope egypt can play in the region going forward, but, obviously, his statements and our grave concerns about them were at the outset of the meeting. the responses were satisfactory enough that we then went on to talk about some of the other vital regional strategic issues. >> now, the white house and the state department have both condemned what he said, so from my own experience, they would not have condemned what the president of egypt said if he had not, in fact, said it, if there were some -- if there weren't some factual base to this. going forward, is this just that he has a different job now, a different role to play and you think that he can be inclusive and is willing to certainly live up to the peace treaty with israel and be the responsible player that the white house hopes he can be? >> i'm hopeful, but frankly we're going to watch very closely his actions, as well as his words. you're right that there is a difference between what folks sa

. and chuck todd, ben wrote about how the pro-israel lobby won the chuck hagel fight, saying in part this. "the good news for hagel's allies and defenders is that schumer offered his tentative support for the former nebraska republican senator. the bad news for hagel's allies among realist foreign policy thinkers and on the foreign policy left is that the nominee appears to have gotten schumer's support by repudiating virtually everything they liked about him. this was always a likely endpoint of the battle over hagel, which has been a proxy war over israel and over a broader foreign policy philosophy, but it has come with remarkable speed and comprehensiveness." chuck todd, where does it stand right now? >> well, it's funny you say that. this says what i've learned and why -- how chuck hagel won chuck schumer, ben's right, it was over hagel sort of repudiating some of his positions, in particular, on iran. so one of the things that chuck hagel made clear to schumer is hey, the first briefing i got on the pentagon was about military preparations to take action against iran, if necessary.
